My name is Caitlin and I live in America. I stayed at the Munich Kastell camp for three weeks and I had an amazing time! I learned a lot of German in a short amount of time. I also made many friends who spoke no or very little english so we spoke German with each other and that helped my spoken German! I met many people from all over the world and I am excited to go to more camps in the future!
